|Bio and Links|
I'm a retired math teacher who started genealogy a few years back as a hobby and I was pleasantly surprised by how many people were willing to help total strangers hundreds of miles away by sometimes spending hours doing lookups in libraries or in cemeteries. Inspired by this, I decided to photograph gravestones in south Logan County Arkansas in my spare time. I want to thank those who left flowers on my family's memorials and a very special thank you and hug to Pam for sponsoring Amy's memorial. |

|Connie Blackwell||Liberty Church Cemetery|
The legal name of LIBERTY CEMETERY is on a marble plaque in the brick fence post at the main entrance. Liberty Church Cemetery is NOT the legal name of this cemetery. Liberty Cemetery's first known burial dates 1862. The Librety Cemetery is located on Coleman Road, which merges into Reville Valley Road, and can be accessed from State Hwy. l09 in Logan County, near the Driggs community. Liberty Cemetery is located on land once owned by Dee Coleman, who first deeded the original Liberty Cemetery parcel in 1912. In 1947, he deeded additional land for cemetery use. Both deeds read, "to the Trustees of the Liberty Cemetery...". The Liberty Church and Schoolhouse, built by families of the Liberty Community about 1878/79, was not moved to its present location on Liberty Cemetery grounds until 1947. Dee's mother, Mary H. (Grogan) Coleman donated approximately one-acre of land where the Liberty Church and Schoolhouse originally stood. Information provided by Connie Blackwell, a Coleman descendent.
|Loneta Boyer||RE: Thank you|
I appreciate that, Samuel died in Texas, and I like to think that his body was sent home, but I am afraid that he is buried in an unmarked grave there, other people researching his history seem to think that he is buried in County Line. when I saw all those white stones with no names--I felt that I was probably connected to many of them. thanks again, Loneta Boyer
|Loneta Boyer||Thank you|
Thank you so much for the work that you did on Thomas Yandell. I am happy that he has a stone marking his grave. So many of my relatives do not. If you are ever in a cemetery in the Booneville/Sugar Grove area and see anything to indicate the graves of Samuel Yandell or his wife Sarah/"Sally Ann" Yandell--will you make a note of it? I have searched the county and can find no record of where they are and believe that they are in unmarked graves. As they were my g grandparents, I would like to find them and put a marker on their graves--sometimes miracles do happen. I think that they are probably in one of the very many unmarked graves in the County Line Cemetery, I was there once looking and saw so many little white stones--all marking a grave. Do you know if there are any written records for this cemetery? Thanks again so much--Loneta Boyer
|Loneta Boyer||Thank You|
thank you for taking and posting the photo of Matilda's Grave. This woman was a brave pioneer who endured much, it is good to see that she has a nice stone, so many of my people do not. Thanks again, Loneta Townsend Boyer
|Edith Wilson||Pearl Irene Taylor Barker|
Thank you for the photo.
|Kay Baldwin||RE: Malinda Henderson photo|
Thank you so much for posting the photo. I'm not sure what I was thinking in not requesting one of her husband's marker.
Her marker is in good shape and thanks for the close up.
Ever since my trip to OK and AR this spring, I've become a contributor to Find A Grave. It is a very helpful site!
|Simmons Family||Lydia Cox|
Thank you so much for taking the picture of Lydia's headstone so that I was able to verify her information. It looks as though before very much longer, the inscription on her headstone will be unreadable so my gratitude to you for taking the time to preserve this monument so that we can continue to see it.

At the bottom of the headstone photo you submitted for David J. Little in the Lick Creek Cemetery, you mentioned that if you attached the wrong photo to the wrong memorial, you would remove it.
I do believe that has been the case. The birth year on the headstone is 1869 and the first three numbers of the death year are 187, so it does seem its been attached to the wrong memorial.
|Simmons Family||J.W. Phillips|
Once again, I owe you my deepest gratitude. Thank you so much.
